Throwing waste in the public is a crime.Hon'ble High Court of Kerala have pronounced that throwing waste in plastic kits in the public places will be considered as punishable crime. It is a welcome directive from the Hon'ble Court.
The important issue here is how to locate the persons who throw waste like this. What is generally observed is that people travelling in two or four wheeler just throw the waste in a desolated place. Nobody will notice this. So catching hold of such culprits will be a problem.
Already there is a order from the Court to catch hold of smokers in the public. But the smoking and selling cigarette are very common in most of the places. Police also are not so keen in implementing the law.
